Kudos and the highest recommendation to Dr. Monica Crook and everyone at Sacramento! I got my gum contouring here. Great experience.
Having a beautiful smile is essential for making an excellent first impression and plays a significant role in how you express yourself. A confident smile elevates your mood and creates a sense of well-being. A healthy smile means you don’t have swollen gums that bleed easily, and your teeth are white, stain-free, and without decay.
Ideally, your gums should have an even smooth appearance, framing your teeth and complementing your facial features. If your gums are puffy and cover too much of your teeth, Laser gum contouring surgery may be right for you.
A gum contouring procedure is ideal for patients who suffer from periodontal disease or other gum conditions. Individuals who have gums that extend down too far can benefit as well. This advanced cosmetic dentistry procedure is used to create a perfect, harmonious gum line for you. It may be used in combination with veneers or dental implants to achieve the best results.
Gum contouring surgery is safe, comfortable, and can be completed in a single visit. First, Dr. Monica Crooks numbs your gums. Then she uses a diode laser to gently cut away excess gum tissue and sculpt a more uniform, balanced gum line.
Diode lasers cauterize while they cut, resulting in less bleeding and significantly reducing the chance of infection, as they sterilize the surgical site. The laser immediately seals the tissue, promoting a fast and relatively pain-free recovery.
Following the laser gum contouring procedure, you may experience some mild soreness, which can be managed with warm salt water rinses and over-the-counter pain meds. Discomfort, if any, is minimal and should not interfere with normal activities such as speaking, eating, and drinking.
Gum contouring procedures can help limit the effects of gingivitis or tooth loss. If your smile is too gummy, removing excess gum tissue may help slow the effects of tooth decay. Or if you suffer from any periodontal disease, contouring may eradicate it.
A gum contouring procedure is relatively quick easy, and the final results can be seen immediately. With the ease and comfort of a laser, the tissue heals quickly with minimal discomfort.
The top 5 benefits of gum contouring include:

The cost of gum contouring depends on the extent of treatment needed. Gum contouring is considered a cosmetic procedure and is not typically covered by most insurance companies.
However, as part of another periodontal procedure, such as crown lengthening, pocket reduction, or regenerative procedures, it may be considered medically necessary and covered by insurance.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Monica Crooks will examine your oral health and discuss your cosmetic goals before designing a personalized treatment plan with estimated costs.
